Ellen: Speak To Text
Ellen DeGeneres loves to try keeping up with all the advances in modern technology. She has a whole segment devoted to autocorrect mistakes in text messages. This time, she found another fun feature on some cell phones: audio texting.
Ellen: Speaking Text Messages
Speak To Text allows you to compose a text message just by speaking into your phone. It is supposed to type the words you say, but sometimes it does not always work out the way it should. Ellen’s audience did not seem to be bowled over by her announcement of this feature, probably because it’s a few years old. She did not let their disinterest put a damper on her bit, and went on to explain that she has trouble texting the normal way because she can’t control her left thumb.
Ellen: Audio Texting Review
Does speaking a text save time? Ellen said it has not been that efficient for her, kind of like when you get the wrong number from the operator when you call information. Ellen demonstrated the system to show off its flaws. When she said, “I’m Ellen DeGeneres, and I’m going to show my audience how audio texting works,” it typed, “I really understand the show my audience how audio texting works.” To be fair, she has a difficult last name to spell, even if you are not a computer.
Ellen: Does Audio Texting Work?
Ellen poorly imitated Portia De Rossi’s Australian accent to say, “I’m going to use my phone to text wallaby.” This time, the phone got things almost right, only dropping the word “use.” Then Ellen spoke lyrics from Nicki Minaj’s song “Super Bass,” which resulted in a blank message that did not want to send. When she started speaking gibberish, things went a little better and the technology worked almost exactly right. Since her bit didn’t work out the way she wanted, she decided to dance with the audience instead.
Ellen’s Lemonade Stand For Oklahoma
With the hot weather setting in as summer approaches, Ellen took the opportunity to set up her own lemonade stand to raise money for tornado relief efforts in Oklahoma. She chose a woman named Taylor from her audience to work in the lemonade stand. Taylor from Westlake Village, California, was very excited to be chosen, and said she is a Baylor student concentrating on social work for the elderly. Ellen advised Taylor to sell the lemonade for as much as she could. As the first customer, Ellen bought a glass of lemonade for $1,000.
Ellen: Swisse Ultiboost Inner Balance Review
Ellen also did a live commercial for Swisse Wellness, with a little help from her friend Andy Zenor. For energy, she recommended Ultivite Plus Energy Effervescent, a multivitamin that you drop in water for an energy boost. Andy Zenor drank the dissolved vitamin and did a little dance around the stage. “Your dance moves may vary,” Ellen said as a disclaimer. Another product, Swisse Inner Balance, gave Ellen an excuse to knock Andy down until he tried the Swisse Ultiboost Inner Balance product. Have you ever tried any Swisse vitamins? Did they work for you?
